A helping hand for Dick and Matutina

Dick and Matutina

Dick and Matutina

I used to laugh all the time watching comedian Matutina do her thing on “John en Marsha.”

Born Evelyn Guerrero, Matutina became a household name for her grating voice. She became scarce following the cancellation of the show.

Recently, I learned she needs financial help having been confined in the hospital where she is scheduled to undergo thyroidectomy.

Matutina is conscious but can’t talk. She is on oxygen support. She communicates only through writing.

Another colleague facing hard times is Dick Israel. The awarded actor is now destitute with his house recently razed by fire.

Making matters worse, half his body is paralyzed following a stroke in 2010.

Coming to Matutina and Dick’s aid is Damay Kamay.

The foundation was formed by a group of artists after actor Julio Diaz was rushed to the hospital early this year.

Damay Kamay’s incorporators are award-winning actress Vivian Velez, former actress-turned-events manager Bianca Lapuz, and restauranteur-actress Nadia Montenegro. Its staunch supporters include Lani Mercado-Revilla, Alma Concepcion, Louise delos Reyes, Jeffrey Santos and Karla Estrada.

Now Damay Kamay wants to touch kind hearts. Share your blessings to actors in need and donate to Damay Kamay via treasurer Peter Serrano’s Security Bank (Morato) account number 5318 2600 0275 0061.
